KINGDOM BUILDERS PRAYER MODEL

Release a spirit of generosity in our church in 2024.

Ask God to supply more than enough for all the Kingdom Builder initiatives for 2024.
“One gives freely, yet grows all the richer; another withholds what he should give, and only suffers want. Whoever brings blessing will be enriched, and one who waters will himself be watered”
“Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed”
“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
“. . . whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows bountifully will also reap bountifully.”
2 Corinthians 9:6
“God is the one who provides seed for the farmer and then bread to eat. In the same way, he will provide and increase your resources and then produce a great harvest of generosity in you.”
2 Corinthians 9:10
HOW TO PRAY FOR MISSIONARIES
Perhaps God has placed a desire in your heart to pray for missionaries everywhere, or maybe for one particular missionary. Either way, God has a great plan to use you to help complete his mission of making his name known among the nations as you participate through prayer. Use these seven points to fuel your prayers for missionaries around the world.
PRAY FOR OPEN DOORS
"Devote yourselves to prayer, being watchful and thankful. And pray for us, too, that God may open a door for our message."
That God will open doors of ministry, blessing partnerships and friendships.
That those who serve will be led by the Holy Spirit and recognize open‑door opportunities.
That God will lead his people past barriers to hearts ready to receive his Word.
PRAY FOR BOLDNESS
"Pray also for me, that whenever I speak, words may be given me so that I will fearlessly make known the mystery of the gospel."
That the Holy Spirit will provide missionaries with words that communicate effectively in other cultures and languages.
That they will have the boldness to overcome the fear of embarrassment or failure.
Against evil forces that would seek to hinder the spread of the gospel.
PRAY THAT GOD’S WORD WILL SPREAD
"Finally, dear brothers and sisters, we ask you to pray for us. Pray that the Lord’s message will spread rapidly and be honored wherever it goes, just as when it came to you."
2 Thessalonians 3:1(NLT)
For strength and stamina as missionaries encounter antagonistic spiritual forces (Ephesians 6:10–18).
That people will resist Satan’s plans to obstruct the spread of the gospel (James 4:7).
That God’s Word will indeed spread rapidly and be honored wherever it goes.
PRAY FOR PROTECTION
"Pray, too, that we will be rescued from wicked and evil people, for not everyone is a believer."
2 Thessalonians 3:2(NLT)
That God will keep missionaries safe.
That God will change the hearts of those resistant to His Word.
PRAY FOR EFFECTIVE MINISTRY
“Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing."
John 15:5 (NLT)
That God will provide strength and perseverance when their ministry seems fruitless.
That seeds will be planted and missionaries would be able to see the fruits of their labor.
That an abundant harvest will be produced as more people learn about the love of Christ.
PRAY FOR TRAVEL
"And then he told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone.”
Mark 16:15 (NLT)
For required permissions to be granted for travel (visas and passports) and necessary funds for tickets and fees.
For protection and provision during travel.
For God’s grace and favor when challenges or obstacles appear on any journey.
PRAY FOR REFRESHMENT
Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.”
Matthew 11:28–30 (NLT)
That God will provide opportunities for missionaries in isolated areas to spend time with other believers.
That God will provide times of peace and relaxation to refresh his workers.
For restoration — physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually — that can only be found in Jesus.
